... Had vitrectomy with gas bubble 9-25 of this year. Surgeon is happy with the healing process. My refraction in that eye however changed from a -4.75 to a - 7.5. Only reason I can think of for that much of a change would be a cataract distorting my vision. My optometrist said he was able to correct vision in that eye to 20-30 with -7.5 contact lens. Could not get 20-20... (1 replies)
... ong story short, I developed a tear in my left retina and my right retina became detached. I was scheduled for Vitrectomy surgery 2 days later.

... I had a vitrectomy for a detached retina following cataract surgery. I had drops prescribed including Pred Forte. I also have a c3f8 gas bubble. I was doing ok for the first few weeks but after tapering the Pred Forte I began having lightheadedness. ... (0 replies)

... It sounds like his macula is detached (off), as that is in the middle of the eye (roughly)... and once that has detached the visual outcome isn't so good. I'm sure I read somewhere that waiting a week after the macula is off doesn't have much or any effect. The gas bubble does press the retina back in to place, so that would be why he saw better previously -- or maybe the... (10 replies)
... towards the middle of the retina so in his case waiting another week won't make a difference... Right now my dad doesn't see much with his eye, while during the gas bubble he saw more... I guess maybe it's because the gas bubble was pressuring the retina so the detachement was less felt? ... (10 replies)
... he bottom corner of his eye. The rest is now mostly black although he could see feel the tv light and his hand waving. Could we be mistaking and it's still the bubble gas blocking the rest of the view? ... (10 replies)
... The circle he sees is the remnant of the gas bubble. The bubble starts out covering all your vision, and it appears dark, almost black. As the bubble shrinks you see it drop in your vision, like a water tank draining. It lightens as it shrinks too. ... (10 replies)
... Many comments that I read say that as the bubble gas gets absorbed people start seeing around it clearer than my dad... Improvements seem so slow, and he seems very far from a clear vision... ... (10 replies)
... 8/26 update: I had a vitrectomy macula off RD with gas bubble on 6/18/15. At my week 10 postop, the gas bubble still at 10%. I am seeing very much everything above the bubble line now, however the overall vision is very poor, I am at 20/100 today same as 5 week ago. The distorted, crooked and double vision still here.

... Hi Vitcat2, Just wondering if you don't mind to share your vision status after one year surgery. I just had vitrectomy macula off RD on 6/18/15, and is experiencing the double, wavy and distorted vision (5 weeks after the surgery and the gas bubble still at 30%). lcchan (15 replies)
... the next few days, I noticed the double vision, wavy line, distortion, etc. I asked my doctor yesterday but he offered no answers, just told me to wait till the bubble is all gone. ... (15 replies)
... I had a vitrectomy a little over two years ago because of a macular pucker. However, I had no gas bubble, so cannot answer you on that. I was left with gray patches throughout my field of vision, so bad I cannot read with that eye. ... (10 replies)
... The point of this post is to share my experiences as well to get some feedback form others in order to figure out what is happening during recovery and why. The doctors generally don't know why. They just tell you to wait and it will get better. ... (10 replies)
... I had vitrectomy operations for retinal detachment for both eyes, and it took 2 or 3 weeks until the gas bubble injected in the eyeball went away (was automatically replaced by your eye's own saline solution). Until then the vision is, indeed, blurry. So, that's okay. But before that ask him to maintain the head down position or whatever the doctor has advised, very strictly,... (2 replies)

... Hello again, vitcat2! I, too, thought that any RD necessitated immediate treatment…until that day that I spoke to my doctor and he told me that since my central vision was gone, it could wait a few days. Ordinarily, I am not a person who blindly trusts medical professionals….I’ve dealt with too many of them who were not intelligent enough, knowledgeable enough, compassionate... (15 replies)
